Just before Easter, Art on King Facebooked that they had the full range of colours in the Copic Multiliner SP pens. I bought myself two as an Easter present to myself. I used one for the first time in the first sketch. The colour is ‘wine’, with tones washed in with ultramarine watercolour. Love it!
A little while ago I blogged about materiality being my word of the year. It meant that I plan to vary my materials instead of always a black pen & realistic watercolours.
Now that my ‘Keeping a Sketchbook’ course is over I feel more free to experiment, though I did introduce working on a toned ground in the final week. I enjoyed that variation so much that I kept on with it afterwards. On Monday I seemed to just go with the flow and kept on with the selective colour. The second sketch was done with a sepia Pitt Pen and two colours of red, and the third also with the Pitt Pen and burnt sienna watercolour.
I still have a brand new unused Copic Multiliner in olive green. I’m longing to use it.
